Cristiano Ronaldo's DNA matched evidence in rape case filed by Kathryn Mayorga, leaked emails show
In a trove of recently uncovered emails between police and prosecutors in the now-dropped criminal case, detective Jeffrey Guyger wrote: 'DNA is back and is a match'
Although Cristiano Ronaldo did not face any charges in the rape allegations that were leveled against him by model Kathryn Mayorga, it has now been revealed that his DNA was matched to evidence in the case.
In a trove of recently uncovered emails between police and prosecutors in the now-dropped criminal case, Las Vegas detective Jeffrey Guyger wrote "DNA is back and is a match", according to the Sun.
While the criminal charges against the football star were dropped, the model is now pursuing a civil case against him for approximately $213,429.
The emails also show that Ronaldo told his lawyer that Mayorga asked him to stop and said "No".
The incident took place at a party with the footballer's extended family at a Las Vegas hotel room. While Mayorga was changing in the washroom, Ronaldo allegedly walked in with his genitals exposed. She said she pushed him away and he allegedly asked her to do a sex act that she refused. The two kissed, however. She had said at the time, speaking to German newspaper Der Spiegel after waiving her anonymity, "He starts to do stuff and touch and grab me. I pushed him away and kept saying ‘No’. I turned away from him and curled up into a ball. That’s when he jumped on me. I said, ‘No, no, no, no'."
Ronaldo had slammed the allegations and called it fake news on Twitter.
Mayorga was also allegedly followed by a team of Ronaldo's "fixers" and that she was allegedly asked indirectly not to go forward with the case during a police medical examination.
She accepted a settlement and signed an NDA in January 2010. However, the case was reopened by the Las Vegas Police on October 2, 2018.
After the allegations surfaced last year, his ex-girlfriend Jasmine Lennard had called him a "psychopath".
“No one has any idea what he is truly like. If they had half a clue, they’d be horrified," she had tweeted at the time. "After much thought, I am reaching out to Kathryn Mayorga and her legal team to offer my assistance in her rape allegation against @Cristiano. I’m not sitting back any longer and watching him lie. I am going to do everything I can to help her. I have messages and recordings that’ll be invaluable to Kathryn and her team in showing his true nature.”
Ronaldo was also accused of having sex with a minor dancer named Karima El Mahroug when she was 17. He allegedly also paid her $4,500 in a Milan hotel in January 2010. He denies these allegations as well.
